You should not make any changes in Defaults.py (see
and other replies in this thread)

Your setting in mm_cfg.py overrides the default in Defaults.py, and
that's the way it should be.

So we're back to the original question. Please go back to
and try to understand what I wrote there. As I said there, "The fact
that you have nothing in virtual-mailman after running bin/genaliases
and/or creating lists indicates you have no lists whose host_name
attribute is in the POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS list".

Since POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS is apparently correct, the problem
is with the lists. This is because the various DEFAULT_*_HOST settings
and add_virtualhost directives are not correct in mm_cfg.py or weren't
when the lists were created. The post referenced above says more about
